The two candidates in the State Treasurer’s runoff face the challenge of getting people out to vote in the November 18 election. Former state representative John Schroder is up against Democrat Derrick Edwards. Schroder knows another low turnout election is coming.

Just over 13 percent of registered voters participated in the October 14th election. Schroder says if elected, he’ll push for smaller state government.

The former Covington Representative served the last ten years in the state legislature. He says in that time, the financial scene has changed and could necessitate differences in the way the Treasurer’s office dictates future budgets and how revenues are generated.
